This is an awesome leather jacket from Eastman Leather. It was purchased from History Preservation Associates and only worn 2-3 times before storing it. I've had it for approximately 1 year and have stored it in safely in a cedar closet. The jacket was purchased new (original retail $1300). Only selling because I need to buy the next size up since I started working out more. My loss, is your gain.


Chest: (pit to pit, laid flat) 22"
Shoulder: (seam to seam) 18"
Sleeve Length: (from shoulder seem) 25.5"
Body Length: 25"
Waist: 19"

If you are looking this jacket up, this is a size 40 Long.

From the site:

Inspired by classic, vintage leather jackets of the 1930's – ‘50's, the ELMC Californian is a style that was often associated with motorcycle riding, being rugged, durable, light weight, easy to wear, and sleekly tailored.

Lovingly crafted by leather artisans on the bench one jacket at time, with each panel cut by hand versus stack cutting by machinery, the ELMC Californian leather half-belt jacket is a throwback to an era where quality was king.

Adding to the vintage aesthetic and comfort found in this style is a hand-applied light treatment of vintage patina – just enough so that the leather looks slightly broken-in for both a rugged look and lived-in comfort.

This is not a leather jacket to be found in malls or department stores – it’s a leather jacket of extreme distinction to last a lifetime and beyond. And with factory repair services available for the parts subject to normal wear such as linings, zippers, buttons, etc., your investment in both history and style can be refurbished to original spec. – there’s nothing disposable about an ELMC leather jacket!

Each example is also outfitted with all the vintage detailing one could hope for, which includes:

Premium, imported Italian horsehide conforming to 3 ounces in weight, fully vegetable tanned and aniline dyed, with a full grain of rivulets and valleys that yields all the character typically associated with old-school, vintage leather jackets.

Fully lined with 100% rayon acetate for easy sliding on and off

Assembly with 4-ply, heavy-gauge, all-cotton thread

Vintage-style Corozo cat’s-eye buttons at cuff opening that provide two-position adjustment

Bi-swing action back for greater range of motion

Half-belt design with adjusting buckles at waist

Hard-wearing, all-cotton drill cloth used in pocket lings

Vintage-style, matte-finish, nickel-plated metal zippers on pocket and center front

Two hand-warmer pockets

Vintage-style union label in pocket

Vintage-style labels in lining woven on vintage shuttle looms
